View Full Version : Grenadiers?

6th Aug 2004, 09:23
Anybody notising any grenadiers in the trailer? That is one magnificent unit type! Grenadiers were important matter in infantry- battles, to quickly take down the number of enemies. Would love to se large infatry regiments getting jellyd up by grenadier- soldiers!:D

Yes sir! Almost done!
Translation: Hi Walter! I don't like grenadeers that much. I like simple fusileers and musketeers (more)! What do you think is so great of grenadeers?

PS: Mr sick sir, I just wanted to show Walter that I'm able to speek a language (norwegian) which is very similar to his motherlanguage (sweedish). Sorry, sir!

Because a grenadier could cause panic in enemy lines, and that would be an intresting element in the battlefield.

yeah, but so can cavalry, artillery, and normal line regiments.

Ever played Shogun; Mongol Invasion? You can clearly see that grenadiers, faster creates panic amongst the samurais, much faster than an heavy mongol cavalry, Grenadiers could also create high damage over an small area, which a rifle cannot.

Ok, dude you need a history lesson.

Grenadiers in the beginning of the 19th century were not specialized "grenade-throwers", they were an e"elite" part of the army, like any other regiments. Grenades as a general tactic was not used during the Napoleonic era, since massive infantry lines were far more effective, and grenades simply stopped making enough damage.

Grenadiers were used as mainly assault troops, garnering them the "elite" status I was talking about, they usually consisted of physically large men, which would indeed give them a higher degree of "panic-causing ability".

What you speak of is a grenadier that is omnipotent which is very untrue. They were usually a very good unit, but not to the degree you speak of.

Please, please, please don't compare units from games in different time periods, as that is plain stupid. What next, are you going to argue the superiority of a well-handled trireme over a 19th century frigate ?

Oooh someone has a bad day here obviosly:D
Sorry for forgetting the period of this game, and secondly sorry that I gave the idea that grenadiers maybe would be fun to play with.

hopes this game will not disappoint me. and hopes it is not another "war and peace" cause that game sucks big time.
you can see some screenshot of imperial glory at ign by keying in imperial glory at the keyword search.

keyword search ?

Go to IGN, go to Gamespy, go to Gamespot, go to the Game's web-site !

I agree in that War and Peace was a bad game, but what does that have to do with anything ?

You're not even comparing the games, you're just saying "I hope it's not like that crappy game."

So what is the point ? Is that the only game you've ever played, apart from Warcraft 3 ?
